Kipsala Beach was opened for swimming this year. It's located between Cable Bridge and newly created yacht park.
The summer is ending, so don't miss the last chance to enjoy the most urban beach in Latvia :)
This is not April Fools' Day Joke, but a screenshot from Indian movie called Agent Vinod, which was released last year.
Few parts of the movie were filmed in Riga in the 2011 summer and it is worth to see just because of that.
Hot pursuits through Riga streets, epic explosion of Riga Hotel and many other scenes involving Riga sights.
Embassy of Sweden in Riga is located on a small little-known street Andreja Pumpura iela in Quiet Centre.
The building itself is as modest as everything Swedish, including the King Carl XVI Gustaf, who usually is driving Volvo S60 himself.
By the way, his beaituful wife Queen Silvia (of Latin origin) is coming to Riga this Wednesday, so many Latvians have a chance to see a queen with own eyes
These dinky gates is a doorway to the embassy of the United Kingdom in Riga at 5 Jura Alunāna street
In case UK citizens will decide to quit European Union during the referendum next year, this place will be surrounded by queues as many Latvian people live and work in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and other countries of the the Foggy Albion.
Main office of Danish Danske Bank, previously known as Sampo Bank (which used to be Finnish one).
Danske Banka is one of 25 banks. Interesting fact that there is a ratio of 1 bank per 40,000 residents if Latvia.
It gets even strange if we do compare to neighboring Lithuania, which has 1 bank per 500,000 residents (7 banks in total)
When I saw a brutal skyscraper in New York with no windows, I told to myself WTF? :)
At that moment I didn't know that in Riga we have something similar. This building technically is only 2 floor high, but it could fit more than 5, and has absolutely no windows.
This building is a huge device and serve as center to control electricity supply around the city.
Vērmanītis is Latvian cuisine restaurant located in the very center on the crossroads of Elizabetes and Terbatas. It is used be cheap as any other Lido Restaurant, but nowadays Vermanitis has prices like any place in city center.

Čilija Pica (Chili Pizza) is the largest pizza chain in Latvia, although it is originally Lithuanian company. It is famous for relatively low prices and good quality of food. Some of Čili pizzerias are open day and night and serving alcohol, hence Čilik could be considered as part of Riga nightlife or even morning life when everybody comes here after parties to have some pizza :)
